The shame of it all! The shame of it all! Some people book with agencies other than CancunSteve. And suffer the consequences. Some stories:
I used to be a fan of those websites for getting such great hotel rates, and most of the time I didn't mind being surprised, sometimes pleasantly so. But after a few stays, I realized that unless you are quite fortunate, booking through a site like Hotwire typically means you will occupy the least desirable room, and I began to question whether I was actually getting a good deal.
to a Web site to book a hotel across the street from where he has a conference
over the next two days. His flight was delayed so he doesn’t get to the hotel
till 11 p.m., and they tell him, ‘We’re sorry, we’re overbooked, but there’s
a hotel six miles down the road where we’ll put you up.’ Guy says, ‘That’s a
big problem because my early morning conference is right across the street.’
Resigned, the weary traveler arranges transportation to the hotel six miles down the road, where, Mr. Stewart says, he expects to stay both nights. But no, they tell him he has to come back to the original hotel for the next night because they’re not overbooked then. Man, was he hot.
